To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

Hugo begins pacing around the room, going into professor mode. We see the galaxy displayed in a large window in the center of the monitor screen.
Hugo: Of course, we're seeing this galaxy as it appeared roughly 200,000 years ago.
Hugo: Because that's how long its light took to reach us out here beyond its halo.
Hugo: Which of course, makes cataloging and navigation rather more complicated.
Hugo continues his lecture:
Hugo: We must wait here for 140 kiloseconds while Causa Sui observes the various stars, clusters, and nebulae, and records their motion vectors.
Hugo: Then, combining that with simultaneous gravimetric readings, it will create a new map of the galaxy as it exists in the present time.
Hugo: This new map, of course, will be merely an estimate. We will need to move progressively closer to the different sextants for better data.
Two-shot of Eithne and Murphy, looking a bit exasperated.
Hugo (OP): And of course, as 'simultaneous' and 'the present time' can only be roughly defined within relativistic limits …
Eithne: Ah … sir, is he always like this on your expeditions?
Murphy: I thought I'd broken him of the habit, but I guess I'll need to punish him some more.
